One other group Im curious about, those whose applications were both not acted upon and not investigated but left in limbo.How so? Left wing organizations that use similar keywords would similarly be targeted. Just for the hell of it I ran the numbers. Here's the list I used, (Feel free to critique since it was a fairly superficial, though I think mostly fair analysis)

The control points seem to match up fairly well. There were aprox 8800 words in all of the organizations approved, and 392 words in the organizations with political leanings. Here are the results of every word that occurred 5 or more times in the political list. (And please, I did this fast so there may be mistakes, but no intentional ones)
Word #Occ %Occ %Baseline Inc
And if we limit the number to say words that occur 5x more often in groups flagged for politics than the universe of groups at large we get:
Tea: 22 Times more likely
Patriots: 13 Times more likely
Party: 12 Times more likely
Ohio: 6 Times more likely
Coalition: 6 Times more likely
Fund: 5 Times more likely
Action: 5 Times more likely.
So here's my Bolo, "Tea, Patriots, Party, Ohio, Coalition, Fund, Action and Progress". Progress should also be one, but it wasn't pulled up by the algorithm because it's split up among Progress/Progressive/Progressnow.. etc..." But, that's me adding in my personal bias to the selection, also 912 occurred 4 times, but 4 is less than my arbitrary number of 5. (I would have had to add Country, and, a, and 912).
Addendum: here's the list from the IRS. Some of these groups were filing as 501(c)(3)'s
